Bicycle Accidents Lawyer In Toronto
Cyclists are especially vulnerable to serious injuries on the road. Cyclists should take precautions to prevent accidents including:
- Wearing a helmet
- Wearing reflective or fluorescent clothing to stay visible to others
- Following the rules of the road; and
- Always being aware the vehicles around you
Although you may follow these precautions, you may still have the unfortunate experience of being in an accident with a motor vehicle. In these circumstances it is extremely important to call the police. Be sure to ask for the contact and insurance information of the other driver and the contact information of any witnesses.
It is very important to obtain timely medical assistance, as many bicycle victims suffer from injuries that at first seem minor but progress into more serious injuries.
Bicycling collision victims are able to get compensation for their losses. Your own insurance company is responsible to cover you for your Accident Benefits Claims including medical expenses and income replacement, if you are unable to return to work. If you or a family member does not have your own insurance policy, then you are able to get compensation under the policy of the driver of the vehicle involved in the collision.
At Grillo Barristers, we have over 30 years of experience litigating claims involving cyclists. We can help you better understand the law and assist you in recovering the compensation that you deserve. If you or a loved one have sustained injuries from being struck by a motor vehicle while riding a bicycle, call Grillo Barristers at 416 – 614 – 6000 for a FREE consultation.
Remember, you will not pay any fees until your case is won or settled.
